GEHA Health Plans Opiates Rehab and Opioid Detox Coverage

Breaking the Cycle

The first step in recovery is coming clean, a process referred to in clinical settings as detox. Your GEHA Health Plans opioid coverage may provide for medically supervised detox, which involves medication administered by a licensed physician in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms and provide a nearly painless detox, but not all policies include what some still consider to be experimental treatment. Opioid withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Lack of energy or fatigue
  • Agitation or irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Fever and chills
  • Goose bumps
  • Yawning
  • Excessive tearing
  • Muscle aches and body pain
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

Options for Rehabilitation

There might include several different types of recovery facilities included as part of your in-network GEHA Health Plans opioid detox coverage:

  • Inpatient Rehab – For patients looking for a place to concentrate 100 percent on recovery without the distractions or temptations present in their day-to-day life, inpatient rehab at a residential facility may be the best route. Here you'll be monitored by a team of addiction specialists as you work to achieve sobriety and plan for long-term success.
  • Outpatient Rehab – Some people simply cannot budget the time or resources to commit to a stay an in inpatient rehab facility, in which case outpatient rehab may be a viable option. You'll still receive comprehensive care, but you'll also have the freedom to be with your family, work, and go to school while you tackle issues related to addiction.
  • Transitional Housing – Going from an inpatient program directly back into your previous living environment can be jarring and provide too many temptations with too little support. Living in transitional housing, like a halfway house, gives recovering addicts a way to ease back into the "real world."

The Importance of Ongoing Support

The completion of a rehabilitation program is only the beginning of a life-long battle against addiction. Maintaining your sobriety takes dedication and is best achieved with the support of friends, family, and experienced addiction specialists. Individual and group therapy are proven ways to address addiction-related behaviors and diagnosis and treat any underlying or contributing issues like mental illness, emotional trauma, or behavioral disorders. Family counseling can help your loved ones become best equipped to support you on your journey, while addiction programs like 12-step groups surround you with the support of people who know where you've been and where you want to go, and who are determined to help you get there. The most important thing to remember is that you don't have to conquer your addiction alone.
